In the ninth century, Anglo-Saxon lands are attacked and in many instances ruled by Viking forces. The main protagonist, Uhtred - the orphaned son of a Saxon nobleman, is kidnapped by norsemen and raised as one of them. Forced to choose between a kingdom that shares his ancestry and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

So far this show is more interesting than Vikings, and much better put together than The Bastard Executioner. After watching two episodes I have backstory, and I have foreshadowing for who I think might be villains in later episodes. The main character is at once a quick thinker and also very young and inexperienced.

Overall, it's really well started. If they continue in the same track it's going to be an amazing show!!!
